This 'n' That

It feels like an anecdotal "fun fact"kind of day, so here are a few for your Friday.

Fun fact #1: Krispy Kreme starts making fresh batches of their original glazed donuts at 6 AM. So if you stop by at 4:45 AM, you will be stuck with last night's glazed or whatever assorted donuts they may have available. Of course, if you are needing donuts that early in the morning, you probably aren't going to be overly picky about when they were made, so long as it was sometime in the last 4 to 6 hours.

Fun fact #2: Few things are as sadistically satisfying as spraying a spider with hairspray and watching it die a slow, paralyzing death.

Fun fact #3: A mixture of warm water, apple cider vinegar, honey, and cayenne pepper may have a bit of a bite, but it will burn a sore throat and cold right out of your head.

Fun fact #4: It is Friday. That means it is time for your week in review (kind of):

  • Well, um, okay then.
  • This is causing a small tizzy.
  • We should sing this hymn more often.
  • Praying for the families of these Marines.
  • Here's your weekly dose of adorable.
  • Is it just me, or should we start expecting this to happen every year? I mean, it seems like an obvious outcome to such a strange event.
  • Aimee Byrd is pondering women's ministries in a series of posts that starts with this one.
  • Don't miss this excellent sermon by Phil Johnson, preaching from Psalm 2.
  • I may have posted this in the past, but it's worth watching again. Through the eyes of Spurgeon:

    C'mon Erin... that's cruel and you know it.

    Love the rest of the post and the links, though.

  2. Im a 33yr old Christian man in UK, just read your blog post about abortionists selling baby body parts and deceiding which bits to keep to sell for more profit, and wonder how merciful and patient God is still letting wicked humanity live and breath. How patient he is for people to respond to the gospel call. And even if aliens DID exist, they would not want to contact us if they knew how evil humanity can be. AND YET I know there is still mercy and grace and forgiveness for abortionists who repent and believe the gospel before it's too late, that's what a kind and patient and loving God we serve. But how terrible must the punishment be for abortionists in hell...


Please keep it pithy (in other words, if your comment is long enough to be its own blog post, don't bother), pertinent (please don't go off-topic), and respectful (to the author, to the other readers, and to the subject of the post). If you can't do that, your comment will not be posted.
